    Yesterday, over Bruges, Belgium I saw the same parallel moving object
    roughly moving from southwest into northwest direction crossing path with
    ISS.  It was a fast moving object in low orbit which now seems to be
    idendified.  I didn't notice a second object.
    
    Tonight I will try again to see both objects and the ATV4 satellite.
